I realized this morning that one of the most important yet subtle shifts in my life since embarking on my full-time creative journey is that I’m no longer constantly looking forward to the next thing or event or change to come. My life is no longer a series of “I can’t wait for _____.”
Of course I have had periods of time in the past when I lived in the moment. However, this time I feel it shift the very foundation of my consciousness. There’s no turning back now, as if I’d have any desire to do so.
This realization is filling me with a new gratitude for each day; for each moment. I can finally live without the weight of time making everyday life a struggle. That alone would have made leaving the “normal” life worth it.
